further in exploration, go beyond earth a little bit, explore our solar system, but nearly all the experiments we cannot have a direct application on earth from crowing -- growing crops better to making new materials, new medicines. we had some very significant research in the development of a vaccine for salmonella, studying our earth, learning how -- learning about the human impact on the environment, how the inner core of the earth works, and possibly leading to better ways to predict earthquakes, better automobile safety, energy efficiency, fuel efficiency. the list goes on and on and on. it is just amazing the research being conducted out here, and that is because this is a very unique environment. the research being conducted of your simply cannot be done anywhere else in the world. that is why this is such an important research facility, and this is really a global asset, the international space station.
